I missed posting on Friday.? I had the trip all planned out to Detroit-tickets, hotel, transportation.? Then there was an illness in the family, and I had to scramble to cancel everything at the last minute.? Bummer.
I was surprised but pleased to hear Jamie Dukes’ take on the Bears on his Put Up Your Dukes show on NFL Network.? On Thursday night, he still picked the Bears not only to beat Detroit, despite missing about 40% of their starting defense.? Not only that, he still has Chicago as the team to beat in the division, despite the feeling for the 2007 Bears being palpably different than last year.
I hope he’s right.? Being a skeptical Bears and Cubs fan, I get a little nervous.? I’m still very nervous about this Lion game.
